In a bid to take on Reliance Jio and Airtel, Idea Cellular has introduced a new prepaid plan priced at Rs 159. According to the official website of the telecom operator, the new prepaid plan has been priced at Rs 159. Under this plan, Idea offers unlimited calling, 1 GB data per day among other benefits for a validity period of 28 days. The plan comes at a time when the telecom industry in India is witnessing an unprecedented competition.

As part of this new plan, Idea offers unlimited local, STD and roaming calls with 1 GB data per day, which is valid for 28 days. However, there will be a daily limit of 250 minutes per day and 1000 minutes per week on calling. The customers will also get 100 SMSes per day during the validity period.
